Every day, the horticultural industry faces increased pressures from competition, pests and diseases, and labor and water shortages. To combat these issues, industry professionals banded together to take their fate into their own hands. By directly guiding and advocating for research, the industry is able to fund the most relevant research as identified by the industry itself.
By pooling our collective financial resources, our money goes further, gets to work faster, and works harder for us. It’s an investment in our own business future.
HRI funds horticultural research that meets industry-approved standards for value, impact, and accountability. From the moment an investment is made by a donor, HRI handles the entire competitive grants process.
All donors giving $100 or more tonight will receive a special thank you gift in the mail.
